CELTA in Athens

CELT Athens was founded in 1993 and is an established Teacher Education in Greece widely known for its role and contribution to the improvement of Foreign Language Education in this country.  To date, it has trained more that 2,500 Foreign Language teachers, directors of studies and administrators and has worked with the private as well as the state school sector.  CELT trainees come not only from Greece, but from many other countries (the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, S.Africa and more).  They come to CELT to start or refresh their teaching career and many currently hold posts in Greece or Overseas.  CELT Athens is primarily a TEFL training centre dedicated to teacher development and to the pursuit of excellence in foreign language education both in the private as well as the public sector and is committed to a policy of equal opportunities.

The face to face CELTA is offered as either a part-time course over 12-16 weeks or as an intensive full time course over 4 weeks. Face to face courses are suitable for people who live in or near Athens and for people who are able to come and spend at least four weeks in Athens. If you can’t come to Athens for more than two weeks, then you may want to consider the online CELTA instead.

Part time courses are offered at least twice during the academic year starting in October and January with sessions on three mornings per week (half-day sessions till 14.00) or once a week on Saturdays (all-day sessions). If you are currently in full time employment and live in or near Athens, the part-time CELTA, which allows you to complete the course at a more relaxed pace, may well be the best choice for you.

Full time courses are offered several times a year and last for four weeks (in February, May, June, July, August, September, November). These are intensive courses which require full commitment, as attendance is from 10:00 to 18:30 every day. This option is ideal for teachers who are prepared to work intensively for four weeks and complete all the CELTA assessment requirements within this period.
